Business Information Systems Engineering deals with the planning, development, implementation, operation and further development of information processing systems that are used for the formalized support of running business processes and for structured strategic decision-making.

The aim of the programme is to enable graduates to design, introduce and use computer-aided information systems and to adapt them to changing requirements, either on their own responsibility or in interdisciplinary cooperation with computer scientists, business economists and specialists from other disciplines. This goal is achieved in the Business Information Systems degree programme through a thorough acquisition of knowledge, skills and practical abilities in the fields of computer science, business administration and business information systems as well as university-specific training in special areas of Business Information Systems Engineering.

A successful course of study leads to the professional qualification "Bachelor of Science". It is a prerequisite for the master's degree course that builds on this.
